Sammy Hagar Says He's Willing To Sacrifice People To Coronavirus For The Economy

Rocker Sammy Hagar said he’s willing to sacrifice people to the coronavirus ― himself included ― if it means saving the economy.

The former Van Halen frontman told Rolling Stone magazine on Tuesday that he would also be happy to play shows “before there’s a vaccine, if it’s declining and seems to be going away.”

“I’m going to make a radical statement here. This is hard to say without stirring somebody up, but truthfully, I’d rather personally get sick and even die, if that’s what it takes,” the musician said as part of an article that asked touring artists how they were coping with being off the road.

“We have to save the world and this country from this economic thing that’s going to kill more people in the long run,” Hagar continued, saying he would “rather see everyone go back to work” and “if some of us have to sacrifice on that, OK.”

1. I like Sammy Hagar even less now.

Not that I ever thought much of him.

6. Or who ever

he loves more then his own personal wealth.

I don’t think of only my health on this issue, I don’t want to hurt anyone else. I don’t want any one to die alone while a family watches on zoom.

8. I want to go see shows as much as the next person...

But as long as COVID is still a thing, I ain't leaving the house except for things I have to leave it for.

18. Me, too. That's what I do. I go to shows.

Won't catch me at one for a long time, though.

I mean, yeah, I don't wanna die. Who does?

But more than that, I don't want to kill people so Sammy Hagar's kids can go back to living large. (Read the article. It's in there.)

I'm not his people anyway. His people are the ones that crowded Huntington about a month back...lol.

That's who he's talking to.

22. Me too, it's my favorite thing to do in life.

I was going to shows all the way up until the stay at home orders were declared. And I'll be going to shows again when (if) they resume in the future. But as for now? I will be avoiding large crowds as much as possible.

10. Go for it dude!

I wonder if he is willing to survive contracting it and, after an intubation in the ICU, potentially suffering a long list of debilitating complications for the rest of his life thereafter?

Really, that would be the followup question to his bravado, macho statement that makes no sense and is actually something that contributes to more deaths, illness, long recoveries and long-term complications.

Dying for the economy is neither patriotic or sensible in a pandemic. It its not at all like dying to defend your country or others, it's almost like tossing sacrifices into a volcano to appease the wealthy in this case.

to see if a possible cure works. You know, so musicians can make a buck or two. You already went thru your money?

wonders why Ed didn’t want a reunion with him. David Lee Roth is still great. Fuck Sammy Hagar. He’s trash.

Sorry, but any "sacrifice" he makes would be meaningless unless he were to perform "essential" labor that keeps the economy moving.

31. He obviously watches Fox News and is probably

a Trump supporter. Where else would he get this stuff? David Lee Roth was always better anyway.

32. 1996: Nerf Herder: "Van Halen"

"Sammy Hagar, is this what you wanted, man?
Dave lost his hair line
But you lost your cool, buddy
Can't drive 55
I'll never buy your lousy records again
Again, again
Never again"

35. Sammy Hagar needs to spend time visiting victims of COVID-19 in the hospital

I know visitation isn't permitted, but in a dream world, let him see the suffering first-hand.

These are comments of fools who haven't seen with their own two eyes the horrid effects of the virus.

Watch the suffering, Sammy. Then either shut the fuck up or let the world know you've changed your damned feeble little mind.
